[REBOL] Question on text formatting
From: andy::flyingcat::com at: 28-Aug-2002 12:37
I'm just starting to use Rebol to make a prototype UI. I'm trying to do
kind of specific visual button arrangements, and the like.
Unfortunately, there's not that much documentation that I've found on
Rebol/View/VID and how I can get it to do exactly what I want...
My current problem is that I want to make a TV channel grid. I've got
it mostly working, but I can't quite get the channel names to appear in
a vertically oriented box, single spaced, so I can scroll it at the same
time as I scroll the channel listing itself.
Basically I want to get a vertical info box:
And so on.
I can set up the box, but when I use 'text (as part of the 'layout) the
text gets double spaced. I'm obviously doing it the wrong way. Can
anyone help ?
Another question: 'layout (in the old docs) used to have both DOWN and
ACROSS, to control default placements. Now it seems to only have
ACROSS. What happened to DOWN ? Was it replaced by another keyword ?
